When doubts fill your mind – remember this: “God does speak … though man may not perceive it”!
‘The Bible is the Word of God’ – What do we mean when we say this? Two statements from Elihu may help us to think about this question. (a) ‘Understanding’ comes from ‘the breath of the Almighty’ (32:8). (b) ‘God does speak – now one way, now another – though man may not perceive it’ (33:14). ‘The breath of the Almighty’ – This is where the Scriptures come from: ‘All Scripture is God-breathed’ (2 Timothy 3:16). God has spoken. He has breathed out His Word. ‘God does speak – now one way, now another’ – There is great variety in the Bible. We have our favourite passages. Let’s not forget the more obscure and difficult passages – He speaks through ‘all Scripture’: ‘now one way, now another’. When the doubters fire their questions – remember: ‘God does speak…though man may not perceive it’!
